Reign FC training camp is underway, and you can go to the team’s YouTube channel for day-to-day coverage.
In some quick news, Seattle’s U.S. women’s national team stars of Hope Solo, Sydney Leroux, Megan Rapinoe and Stephanie Cox are expected to rejoin the group Monday following the Algarve Cup. Jess Fishlock is also set to return that day following action for Wales.
Other internationals — Carmelina Moscato (Canada), Kim Little (Scotland), Nahomi Kawasumi (Japan) — should be back by March 21.
In other notes:
— Defender Alina Garciamendez, a Mexican international acquired from Washington in an offseason trade, isn’t expected to play for Seattle this season. She is under contract with Germany’s FFC Frankfurt through June and plans to go to dental school afterward. Seattle will retain her NWSL rights.
— The Reign will play an exhibitions against the University of Washington at Husky Soccer Stadium on April 3 at 7 p.m. and then Seattle Pacific University at Memorial Stadium on April 5 at 6 p.m.
— A March 29 exhibition against the University of Portland has been canceled by the school’s request due to scheduling conflicts.
— Game tickets go on sale Monday (Seattle Pacific tickets will be free). Season tickets and half-season packages are already on sale.
